Gregory Dussor

Gregory Dussor, PhD, is Professor and Chair of the Department of Neuroscience at the University of Texas at Dallas, US. His work focuses on understanding how the sensory innervation of the meninges contributes to headache disorders. Using several preclinical models, his group has identified numerous targets within this afferent nociceptive system including several that may contribute to sex differences observed in migraine.

In this Migraine Science Collaborative podcast, Dussor speaks with MSC Executive Editor Neil Andrews to discuss his path to studying migraine, his research contributions so far – especially his work to develop better animal models of migraine – what’s going well in the migraine field and what needs to get better, and even his love of coffee and the band Phish.
